See Yourself As God Sees You!

Yesterday's Scripture Guidance

Matthew 13:3 & 10-13

Then Jesus told them (the large crowd of people) many things in parables (a short story to teach Christian principles), saying, "A farmer went out to sow his seed."

(After the story was told) Jesus disciples came to Him and asked, 'Why do you speak to the people in parables?'

Jesus replied, "Because the knowledge of the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven has been given to you (Jesus servants), but not to them.

Whoever has (this knowledge) will be given more, and they will have an abundance (of this knowledge).  Whoever does not have (truly receive this knowledge), even what they have will be taken from them.

This is why I speak to them in parables:  Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand."


In today's Scripture..., the great servant of Jesus, the apostle Matthew; tells us of the time that Jesus utilized parables, or short stories, to teach people that many people will hear the Word of God; but not everyone who hears the Word..., will receive the Word of God in their heart.  Amen!  After speaking the parable, Jesus disciples (His servants) wanted to know why He utilized these short stories.  And Jesus gave an answer to His servants that is still the answer to His servants today.  Amen again!  In fact, the entire Scripture Chapter is Jesus teaching His servants about ministering the Gospel of Jesus; and helping His servants to understand that not all people will truly accept Jesus..., and very few will believe in Jesus enough to become His servants, and truly bear fruit for the Kingdom of God!  Hallelujah!  Jesus is speaking to His servants today..., just as He spoke to His servants then!  Glory Hallelujah!  And as Jesus said in Matthew 11:15, and other parts of the Gospel..., "He who has ears to hear..., let him hear."  Glory to God!  Our Scripture begins with Jesus speaking to the crowd, saying..., Then Jesus told them (the large crowd of people) many things in parables (a short story to teach Christian principles), saying, "A farmer went out to sow his seed."  Jesus is a Servant; and as a Servant; Jesus recognized that He knew the Gospel of Jesus completely..., while the people that He wanted to receive the Word..., did not.  So Jesus told them a story that they could relate to..., so that He could then relate the Gospel of Jesus to that story.  Amen!  Our Word continues with Jesus teaching His servants to realize that they know the mystery of the Word of God; while others do not, for..., (After the story was told) Jesus disciples came to Him and asked, 'Why do you speak to the people in parables?'  Jesus replied, "Because the knowledge of the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven has been given to you (Jesus servants), but not to them.  Whoever has (this knowledge) will be given more, and they will have an abundance (of this knowledge)."  Jesus reminds His servants that as a servant of Jesus, God has revealed knowledge of His Word to you.  In fact, today, that knowledge is revealed to you through the Holy Spirit!  Jesus servants have much more knowledge of the Word than the audience that Jesus will send you to.  Amen again!  And the Word of God concludes with Jesus teaching His servants, that..., "Whoever does not have (truly receive this knowledge), even what they have will be taken from them.  This is why I speak to them in parables:  Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand."  For the audience that Jesus sends you too; will not truly understand the Word, and what little they may understand; will be taken from them if they do not receive the teaching in a manner that they could understand.  So humble yourself, and the way you teach!  Today..., Jesus is speaking to His servants!  He who has ears to hear..., let them hear!  Amen.

Today..., our Scripture is speaking to the servants of Jesus Christ.  Jesus, Himself..., is teaching us that we serve Him so that others will come to understand the Gospel of Jesus, so that they can be forgiven for their sins; redeemed to God..., and receive salvation from God!  Amen!  As a servant we must understand that our service is about getting those who do not understand the Word, to understand the Gospel of Jesus..., so that they can be saved!  Hallelujah!  Jesus is a Servant; and Jesus is also the first Teacher of the Gospel of Jesus!  Glory Hallelujah!  So Jesus obviously knew the Gospel of Jesus better than any person that has ever walked the earth.  Yet He did not teach the Gospel at a level where others would not be able to understand it.  The apostle Matthew tells us of the time that Jesus utilized parables, or short stories, to teach people that many people will hear the Word of God; but not everyone who hears the Word..., will receive the Word of God in their heart.  Amen!  Jesus disciples (His servants) wanted to know why He utilized these short stories.  And Jesus gave an answer to His servants that is still the answer to His servants today.  Amen again!  Jesus is teaching His servants about ministering the Gospel of Jesus; and helping His servants to understand that not all people will truly accept Jesus..., and very few will believe in Jesus enough to become His servants, and truly bear fruit for the Kingdom of God!  Hallelujah!  Jesus is speaking to His servants today..., just as He spoke to His servants then!  Glory Hallelujah!  Glory to God!  Our Scripture begins with Jesus speaking to the crowd, saying..., Then Jesus told them (the large crowd of people) many things in parables (a short story to teach Christian principles), saying, "A farmer went out to sow his seed."  Jesus is a Servant; and as a Servant; Jesus recognized that He knew the Gospel of Jesus completely..., while the people that He wanted to receive the Word..., did not.  So Jesus told them a story that they could relate to..., so that He could then relate the Gospel of Jesus to that story.  Amen!  Teaching the Gospel of Jesus is not about the servant showing off their knowledge.  It is about getting others to understand the Word of God!  Each servant of Jesus was selected by God; and given knowledge of His Word..., by God!  So humble yourself, and the way you teach!  Today..., Jesus is speaking to His servants!  He who has ears to hear..., let them hear!  Amen.
